CB30

One of our favorite brother duo’s CB30 have 2.4 million fans on TikTok. They continuously post both comedic pranks on the platform, as well as, killer covers and original songs. Most recently, Christian and Brody covered “drivers license” by Olivia Rodrigo, which fans went crazy for. This led the duo to release their own official cover of the track to all streaming platforms. They also just released their original new song, “Healthy.”

Priscilla Block

Priscilla Block earned her record deal because of a viral TikTok hit! Her song “Just About Over You” is still trending on the platform and she is about to make her Grand Ole Opry debut this month. It is safe to say that Block is killing it. To learn more about her, check out our interview with the artist here.

Andrew Jannakos

With just under 800k followers on TIkTok, Andrew Jannakos became a bonafide sensation after his wife posted a video of him singing his song “Gone Too Soon” on the platform. Now, the singer is a signed artist, and his second single “Wine Country” was released just a few weeks ago. We are loving his talent, and cannot wait to see him blossom.

Kierra Lewis

Rounding out our list is Kierra Lewis. The incredible comedian is a superstar in the making. She went viral on TikTok with a comedic rant about Sam Hunt, and her newfound fame is proving to be one that we can all enjoy together in country music.

Country Stars Cover Songs off Justin Bieber’s ‘Justice’ Album and More

Justin Bieber is one of the most successful superstars of our generation. Despite his pop sound, Bieber has appealed to the masses and has fans from every genre, including country music. In celebration of his latest hit record, Justice, we’re taking a look at some of the country artists who have shared their own versions of Justin Bieber’s music.

 

  1. “Off My Face”- CB30

One of our favorite brother-duo groups, CB30 showed off their insane talent and harmonies, covering Bieber’s song “Off My Face” off the brand new record Justice. Fans are already insisting that the singers release their version of the song to streaming services ASAP. For now, fans can listen below on their Instagram.

 

  1. “One Less Lonely Girl”- Russell Dickerson

We are still in love with this old-school cover of “One Less Lonely Girl” by Dickerson. This 2011 cover is still just as amazing as it was back then. The song is one of the few songs that put Bieber on the map, and it’s exciting to look back at it through Dickerson’s (a virtually unknown artist at the time) eyes. Check it out below!

 

  1. “Intentions” – Temecula Road

The harmonious and talented trio, Temecula Road covered Bieber’s song “Intentions” last year. It is safe to say that they absolutely slay the cover, showing off their country roots, on an otherwise pop-infused jam.

 

  1. “HOLY”- Alana Springsteen

One of our newest favorite songstresses, Alana Springsteen is an absolute Queen when it comes to covers! She has covered songs from artists like Taylor Swift, Dan + Shay, and of course, Justin Bieber. Her cover of “HOLY” is so smooth and soothing, and we cannot get enough of it! Check it out below. While you’re at it, make sure to download her new song “Trying Not To” with Roman Alexander.

 

  1. “Love Yourself”- Kane Brown

Before he was a superstar and selling out arenas, Brown was just a kid trying to make it in country music. In 2016, he performed “Love Yourself” in a live studio radio performance, and doubters were stopped in their steps. His version still gives us chills. Watch the clip below!

 

CB30 Releases Piano Version of Olivia Rodrigo’s Viral Hit, “drivers license”

CB30 released their breathtaking piano version of Olivia Rodrigo’s viral smash hit, “drivers license”. Listen to the mesmerizing cover here and take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

CB30, the brother duo made up of Brody and Christian Clementi, have killer harmonies and a style that connects with fans across genres. With an incredible following on both TikTok and Instagram, the singers typically give fans exactly what they want. After sharing a clip of the two singing Olivia Rodrigo’s viral smash hit song, “drivers license,” it was evident that the pair had to record their own rendition. CB30’s version of “drivers license” is raw, intimate, and showcases their immense talent.

While the original version of “drivers license” is somber and heartbreaking, Brody and Christian’s rendition is powerful, intimate, and piano-driven. Older brother Christian leads on vocals while Brody joins at the chorus, providing killer harmonies. Additionally, Christian worked as the producer on the track, marking the first self-produced song the duo has released. If you were unsure of their talent before, CB30 proves with this song that they are not only talented vocalists, but incredible artists in their own right.

“And I know we weren’t perfect // But I’ve never felt this way for no one // And I just can’t imagine // How you could be so okay now that I’m gone // Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me // ‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street”

The Nashville natives are clearly making Nashville and country music proud with this song! CB30’s rendition of “drivers license” is a song that I will have on my own personal playlists for a long time coming!

CB30's piano version cover of Olivia Rodrigo's "drivers license" is available now, March 26th

Who is CB30? The Story Behind Their Journey to Country Music

CB30

Nashville is filled with talented artists and songwriters, but it is always exciting when a promising new act can call Nashville their hometown. Brothers, Christian and Brody Clementi make up a duo called CB30, who just so happens to fit the bill! We interviewed the talented brothers about growing up in the Nashville music scene, taking social media by storm, and of course their new music and growing fanbase.

Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Christian and Brody grew up in a musical household. Their father, Jay Clementi, is a musician and hit songwriter, so it is safe to say music is in their blood. “Music was our priority, our biggest thing growing up. We didn’t really think it would be anything else,” shared the brothers, when asked about their upbringing.

Despite that fact, the singers found themselves interested in sports and other activities, it was not until they performed at a charity function and saw the reactions of their fans that they decided to take their talent seriously. “They loved the harmonies, and we realized how special it was- just singing as brothers.” The duo began to make more connections in the industry, including their now friend and one of their musical influences, Luke Bryan, with who they performed a cover of “Cover Me Up” on Instagram, during the quarantine.

CB30 also identified country stars like Thomas Rhett and Sam Hunt as some of their inspirations. Interestingly enough, the duo also gravitates towards the Pop world, emulating artists like Justin Bieber, Ed Sheehan, and Bruno Mars.

Fittingly, CB30 is entering a music world, where genre-bending and collaborations are a part of the fabric of country music. “I think the borders are expanding,” the brothers explained, “We love all kinds of stuff. I love when Pop people do acoustic stuff because it’s almost country, but it’s still considered Pop. It’s an acoustic guitar and a well-written song, that’s what country music is.”

Their latest single “We Are Right Now” is a great example of that philosophy. The song was originally released as an upbeat jam, featuring layers of vocals and creative harmonies by the two men, but could easily be stripped-down acoustically. Christian and Brody use their voices to convey moments in time that feel as close to perfect as possible. Singing lyrics like “I can spend forever just feeling it together like we are right now,” they definitely give a new meaning to appreciating the moment.

CB30 even transformed that same song, remixing it with Black Caviar, and creating an even newer vibe and sound. “It is just a different spin on it,” they began, “The remix is like a party song. It turned it into a whole different vibe, which is really cool.” The song continues to be a fan-favorite across social media, and especially on TikTok, a place where CB30 has grown in popularity.

Fans can expect even more content on social media, as the duo is dedicated to getting content out to fans any way they can. As far as new music goes, CB30 is headed back into the studio soon! “We actually just recently picked the songs that we are going to record, and it should be here pretty soon, so that’s exciting,” they shared. As soon as recording gets underway, they hope to continue to put at music at a fast pace and keep the momentum going.  CB30 is also hopeful for touring to start again in 2021 and anticipate opening for some headlining artists in the future. Regardless, it is safe to say that CB30 has a bright future ahead of them!

Newcomers CB30 Release “We Are Right Now”

CB30 We Are Right Now

After releasing their sentimental love song, “Love That About Her,” one of Nashville’s newest duos, CB30 continues to impress fans with their beautiful harmonies and brightening personalities. We featured the talented brothers, Christian and Brody Clementi in one of our Saturday virtual brunches and can attest for their undeniable charm. The duo just upped the ante with a new single entitled “We Are Right Now.”

If one thing is for certain, CB30 know how to make the girls swoon with their romantic, yet honest lyrics. Christian and Brody use their voices to convey moments in time that feel as close to perfect as possible. Singing lyrics like “I can spend forever just feeling it together like we are right now,” the men definitely give a new meaning to appreciating the moment.

The addition of the layered voices towards the end of the track only amplifies the already stellar production. We love how easily these lyrics could lend itself to both a simple acoustic performance, as well as, a bigger during a live show. We are excited to see what CB30 release next!
